Armed Forces Day falls on May 19, so people with loved ones serving in the military have a few days to come up with gift ideas to send to those who are away from home. It may be hard to think of good ideas, especially as bases have certain restrictions that families must abide by when sending presents.

1. Send care packages. A great way to remind your loved one of home is to send a care package full of their favorite things, including snacks, games and more. If your cousin loves homemade cookies, make a batch and send them along. If your friend is into video games, pack a few new games and plenty of extra batteries. These simple gestures can go along way in assuring a loved one they're always on your mind.

2. Video chat. Technology has made it easier for families to keep in touch with one another while away. This May 19, surprise a loved one who is far away by having the entire family come over to wish them well. This may help your deployed spouse feel included in family activities.

3. Send gift flowers. Flowers can be a great gift to send to someone serving in the military as they are a way to connect with home. Try and figure out your husband or wife's favorite type of fresh flowers in order to surprise him or her with something they'll truly love by using an international flower delivery service to send to their base overseas. A collection like Teleflora's Uniquely Chic is sure to impress your loved one. This arrangement of orange asiatic lilies, hot pink and light orange roses and understated greenery is both sophisticated and bright - just like your spouse.
